Cook comes to boil for Cumbrians
Carlisle striker Jordan Cook is expecting to return in time for the crucial clash at play-off rivals Stevenage.
Cook, on loan from Sunderland, was forced out of the weekend defeat to Charlton with tight groins, but is likely to start up front alongside Francois Zoko. The Cumbrians' leading goalscorer Lee Miller has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a groin injury. Forward Paddy Madden replaced Cook on Saturday and will be among the substitutes again alongside teenager Mark Beck, who made his first-team debut off the bench against Charlton. Left-backs Chris Chantler (hamstring) and Matty Robson (back) remain sidelined, so Danny Livesey will continue to fill in on the flank with Lubo Michalik alongside Peter Murphy in central defence. The Cumbrians are a point behind sixth-placed Notts County with a game in hand.
